I have a signed copy
A very good book, with some surprises & stories that will make you look at Ray in a different light.

The first half of the book is better than the second half.
There's more humility in the first half.
The second half has too much of the 'they knew I was the best' tone to it, and not just the Moat stuff.
It's a very lightweight and easily digestible book (that's not a criticism), but not worth 20. Worth getting at 5.99 since once you've read it there's nothing in there to make you need (or want) to read it again.
Put it in the loo and make it your 'No 2's' book.

Yeah, I was very disappointed by it.. It's got so little bushcraft in it it doesn't deserve the 'outdoor ' moniker in the title.

I enjoyed it, but I seem to notice he oils his ego about as much as his knives in the second half. Still glad I read it.
